Hot Shop: Bill Hallman Studio

If there’s a recession-proof clothing boutique in Atlanta, Virginia-Highland’s Bill Hallman is it. The store has been open nineteen years—an eternity for an independent retailer that stocks emerging and offbeat labels. But even Hallman, forty-three, has had to bend his business to the times. Due to high rent on North Highland and affordable real estate elsewhere, he decided to shrink his original location by half and roll out a series of small neighborhood shops. In addition to Bill

Style Insider: Don’s Draper

An equestrian design on Mad Men Janie Bryant’s grandmother was the sort of hostess who modeled a different apron for every occasion.

Style Insiders: Runway Projects

LEONA Two and a half years ago, Lauren Leonard turned down a handful of New York design jobs to launch a women’s clothing line from her parents’ Tuscaloosa home. Today, the twenty-five-year-old lives and works in a Buckhead loft and hopes to round out a list of sixt

Hot Shop: Seed Factory

Seed Factory, a new children’s store on the westside, is a parent’s fantasy of what a child’s playroom could look like—sun-filled, many-colored, with everything in its place. Toys, trucks, and Dr. Seuss mingle with papier-mâché dolls and fabric birdhouses. T-shirts and cargo shorts hang next to gauzy tutus and jewe

Hot Shop: Lila

If clothing stores were beverages, Lila would be an ice-cold glass of lemonade. Sunny in decor and disposition, with prices that will make you say “ahhh,” this newcomer on North Highland has a simple goal. “I wanted to bridge the gap between people who shop in high-end stores and people who are stuck at Targ

Style Insiders: Get Married

While it’s fitting that a husband-and-wife team would start a television show called Get Married, it wasn’t sentiment that prompted Stacie and Dave Francombe to carve their niche. The CNN alums chose an industry with perpetually high revenues ($50 billion annually), saw a glut of reality shows therein but few informational shows, and in three years have turned a local, Sunday-only broadcast hosted by Q100’s Jenn Hobby into a five-day-a-week Lifetime program hoste
